ShareCamp will be a two-day BarCamp event. BarCamps, also called non-conferences, that is looking for active contributors rather than passive consumers. There is no fixed, up-front agenda, but all participants are invited to present – contents will be decided upon among the participants. Spontaneous sessions replace the pre-prepared presentations found at traditional conferences. Developing ideas freely and mutual interaction are not only allowed, but explicitly encouraged.
Our slogan is “born2share.” (spoken born to share point ;)
ShareCamp addresses technical issues (installation, administration, migration, …) as well as social aspects of collaboration and their effects on company cultures. Best practices, helpful tools and add-ons – all topics of interest to the participants are welcomed, in particular special interest topics.
We expect a mixed audience of up to 200 SharePoint administrators, developers, end users, Microsoft staff and solution providers.
ShareCamp takes place April 10/11 at the Microsoft headquarters in Unterschleissheim (Munich); Microsoft will also serve as a diamant sponsor of the event.
ShareCamp is non-profit oriented, but an independent event organized by volunteers from within the SharePoint community. ShareCamps are only made possible by the kind contribution of sponsors that allow for a such an event to be free of charge and to cover expenses for event site, infrastructure, and catering.
Participation and catering is free of charge for all participants.
The idea a BarCamp about SharePoint was born at TechEd Europe by Michael Greth and myself. Here we go!
